In light of speech of the
President of theRepublic of Tajikistan
esteemed Emomali Rahmon
at the meeting with scientists of our country
on March 18, 2020

Leader of the Nation, Founder of Peace and National Unity, the President of the Republic of Tajikistan Emomali Rahmon always emphasizes in his annual messages to the Majlisi Oli of the Republic of Tajikistan, scientific works, speeches and regular meetings with people, scientists, intellectuals, students and pupils of middle schools, that the society can only be ruled and developed by a professional, scientifically educated and enlightened person.
By that the Head of State means, that forming a strong scientifically thinking mind proven in practical use, which can analyze and explore the laws of nature, society, intellect and can actually be used for the benefit of society is what we need nowadays.
In other words, only knowledge with awareness of the true (occurring) situation is able to solve problems and can be an mean for eliminating the causes that create obstacles in the way of existence of society.
As we already know, humans are the highest creations of nature, hence only their mental capabilities (mental potential) are big enough to be able to fully understand this world.
Contemplation and realization of the results of researching scientific materials are the basis of the personality development.
And as the teacher (master) Sadriddin Ayni once said, the ability to analize and think are the best qualities of a person.
An enlightened person realizes, analyzes and evaluates the essence of nature, makes decisions equivalent to reality.
Without studying science, a person loses the ability to make an effective decision, is always under pressure from unhealthy beliefs and views, and begins to show a tendency and desire for prejudice and extremism.
An illiterate person becomes a trusting, naïve human being and becomes really dangerous for society. Such people are not able to feed their brain and mind with visual intellectual feeling, such as reading a book, and slowly this ability, this instinct becomes assigned to the auditory organs.
A person loses his abilities to analize and think.
In that state of mindthe feeling of acquiring new knowledge turns into some kind of instinct of receiving the information, and what other people say becomes the axiom. These kind of people often fall under the influence of other people’s statements, oftentimes becoming fanatics of the wrong ideology of bad individuals (mostly half-taught mullas). These kind of people are being very easily controlled by their “masters”, who guide them to the wrong path for own benefits.
Of course, these ideologists are mostly interested in making people illiterate and take them as far from science and enlightenment as possible. Because, this state of mind in which they put people to, becomes not only a source of their enrichment, but, above all, a mechanism for managing and controlling society.
It is well known that a group (part) of modern youth of our country, turned out to be divorced from sciences, has fallen under the influence of extremist religious movements because of illiteracy, and joined their troops, endangering themselves and the lives of other people and this kind of situations are still happening.
So the Head of State created all conditions for the proper educational development in this connection. And thereby in his another Message to the Majlisi Oli of the Republic of Tajikistan he proposed grandiose objectives to increase the level of education and upbringing of the younger generation.
The Leader of the nation felt and understood all the growing weight of responsibilities, faced them, and gave the educational, scientific and other related structures the following tasks and objectives:
“The control upon the proper knowledge development and learning of modern sciences needs to be strengthened by stimulating teenagers and the youth to reading scientific and fiction books, strengthen their creativity and direct their attention to the study of natural, exact and mathematical subjects” .
Therefore on March 18th 2020, at the meeting with the scientists of our country, Leader of the nation expressed his opinions and visions reinforcing them with concrete findings and thoughts, revealing various aspectsof the given problem and the possible ways of resolve, set specific tasks for all state and non-state structures and took them under his own strict control.
Hereby, the main goal and objective of the author of this monograph was to write about his attempt to study, analyze and review of the most important aspects and parts of the Leader of the Nation, the President of the Republic of Tajikistan, esteemed Emomali Rahmon’s speech at the meeting with the intellectuals of republic on March 19th based on problems of science, education and upbringing of a person.
